Welcome to the New Year!
With much hope and joy we welcome the year 2023.
After the difficult years due to the pandemic, we can now probably plan more and look forward to many reunions, such as our meeting with radio amateurs in the IPA from May 11-14 at the 42nd IPARC national meeting in Holzminden.
Unfortunately, Russia's war against Ukraine caused us to cancel the IPA contest last year. We very much hope to have offered a reasonably adequate alternative with our activity weekend and are now looking forward to the IPARC Contest 2023.
May 2023 bring peace in Europe and the world, give us the opportunity to practice our hobby without restrictions, and also to be able to maintain and establish contacts with our Ukrainian friends again.
Best wishes and greetings to all of you and your families for the year 2023, best health and see you / hear you soon.

News from the UK
Recently Horst, DL1GBP, received an e-mail from James, GM0GMN, who told him news from IPA and IPARC UK section:
While I have been a member of the UK IPARC for many years the club was not very active. In the summer time we heard the very sad news that Tom, G0NSY, had become a silent key. I received a telephone call from IPA asking if I would take over the running of the club and I agreed. We have made some changes and we have a Facebook page with the link below.
We also have a callsign GM4IPA
We now have 80 members and a Sunday net at 1900 hrs on 3.770 Mhz and DMR TG 23597.
Please keep in touch and Merry Christmas.
